just had a thought... if someone were to tell me something "on my face", i would tell them they are too close for comfort, get off my face!!! (now that's a good line to use when a guy gives an unwelcome kiss.. "do you mind? you're on my face!")

Now that one would have a different meaning in the thread of my corner.... :P

here we go again, erotic eric is back! :roll:

no eric, the original "in my face" would be far more meaningful in your thread... as in "get outta my face!" or rather "(choke choke) gad ouda by pace (choke)". okay waiting for the decency police to arrest me now. :P

One of my other peeves is that peeps can't stray from the subject a bit.......lolol.............

My mind is all over the place, all the time, so I love meandering threads........but it's true, back to pet peeves..........


People who ...usually the opposite sex this one....are all over you one mo, then pretend you don't exist the next.....(I am not the only one to have experienced this, surely?)

People who don't try to involve everyone in a social event and ignore one or more members of the gathering....so bloody rude, a word now and again is just common decency....

Cleaning the cooker........

Barking dogs...........

Dog poo left on the pavement......

Peeps who go out for meals with their kids and maids then ignore them....

People like me who will not pipe down.........?????????

Ha ha.....

Bubbs..

Same peeve, and like always, you trigger me Bubbs.

One moment you are full of ... 'excitement' on the Eric's corner thread, next moment you don't even react on questions asked there? :cry:

Hi Eric
I drew this for you, in answer to the 'shower' question. It started off as a girl in a shower in the original drawing, then ended up as 'Moonshower' after I'd twiddled with it on Photoshop.
It's my answer to the original question!!!!!!!lol.

Ah! A place to gripe....perfect! 8)

MRT trains when crowded, and getting jostled about or squished because everyone damn one of them wants to stand right in front of the door

Watered down booze

Being required to produce all my educational certificates even when I'm just applying for a temp postion as a waitress!!!! :mad:

Cat fur on all my black clothes (But I love the little critters)

people who pretend not to notice that I'm waiting for a cab too and cut in front of me

shopping for tops that fit

cockroaches of any size :shock:

gaining weight

people who chat on the phone or amongst themselves in a cinema

being handed a zillion flyers on the way to work

people who chat on their handphones while at the dinner table with you

smudging your toenail polish on just one toe so obviously that you simply have to do it again, resulting in you having to remove at least half the nailpolish on your fingernails

overflowing ashtrays

waiters who do nothing more than 'wait'. And never see you, since they're so busy 'waiting' for something to happen!

Salesgirls who can only say 'Sorry, dunno' no matter what you ask them

Skateboarders on Orchard Road on a saturday afternoon

That moment of recognition when you just realize what was so important that you forgot to take with you when you left the office/home/a restaurant that you can no longer go back for

Hitting the 'send' button and realizing you forgot to include the spreadsheet or attachment #-o

receiving chain mail - of any kind

people who don't say 'excuse me' and push past you


I'd better stop now, or no one will ever hear the end of it! :oops:

Gawd! You people whine so much! :P
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

Bubbs,

If you seriously drew this for me, I am going to print it out, frame it and hang it at the wall in the bathroom. In case I do get any questions from misses Eric, please forward me your phonenumber, so I can refer to you for those inquiries? (coward as ever...) :D :o

Thanks for this one Bubbs, I like it a lot... :)

Eric

Hi Eric

Ooh heck! Thanks for compliment, but not sure it's all that good as I did it in about half an hour.

Perhaps I should have dedicated it to the subject matter of the thread, and all who contributed. Don't want to step on anyone's toes. So just say it was a contribution, art wise, to a topic.

I'm like this, if I sometimes write about ideas, then I have to draw them too.

Regards
Bubbs.

It's lovely Bubbs. I'm reteaching myself Photoshop after many years away -- not an easy task. The original drawing, the nude -- did you scan it in to start?
When you go in for a job interview, I think a good thing to ask is if they ever press charges.
